The 4-H member must be currently enrolled in the 4-H Space Tech project to exhibit in this division. 2. Each exhibitor may enter one exhibit per class. Exhibit must have been completed during the current 4-H year. 3. Each robot must be free-standing, without the need for additional supports in order to be moved or exhibited. 4. Robot dimensions should not exceed 2 feet high, by 2 feet deep. Weight may not exceed 15 pounds. 5. All electric components of the robot must be adequately covered or concealed with a protective enclosure. Paper is NOT considered an adequate enclosure or covering for electrical components. 6. Robots must be powered by an electrical battery, water, air or solar source only. Robots powered by fossil fuels/flammable liquids will be disqualified. All robots must include an on/off switch for operation. No remote control devices will be allowed. 7. Each robot must be in operable working condition. The judges will operate each robot to evaluate its workmanship and its ability to complete the required tasks for this current 4-H year. 8. Each exhibitor is required to complete the “4-H Space Tech Robotics Exhibit Information Form”, which is available from the Extension Office. This form must be attached to the outside of a 10” x 13” manila envelope. 9. The exhibit must include written instruction for operation, construction plans, one to three pages of project photographs or a 5-minute CD, DVD, or video presentation, and robot programming information, if applicable. This information should be placed inside the 10” x 13” manila envelope mentioned above. The exhibitor may enter their electronic project listed under the electric program as under the SpaceTech robotics project if the exhibitor so chooses. Robots that include weaponry of any kind will be disqualified. 10. Creativity, workmanship, and functionality will be strong criteria in judging the “Robot designed by Exhibitor” classes. 11. Exhibitor’s name, county/district must be tagged or labeled in a prominent location on the robot, educational display, notebook and/or poster board. 12. Educational displays are limited to a 2’ x 3’ tri-fold display board. No cardboard table exhibits will be allowed. Care should be taken to use durable materials that will withstand Fair conditions. No electricity will be provided. 13. Team project notebooks must be organized in a 3-ring binder and should highlight information/roles of each team member, drawings, charts, photographs, goals and objectives or your robotics project, and all robotic competitions your team has completed in during the current 4-H year. JUNIOR DIVISION - (7-9 years of age) #411 Robot made from a commercial (purchased) kit #412 Robot designed and constructed by exhibitor. The robot must not be a mere modification of an existing robot kit or plan. #413 Programmable robot made from a commercial (purchased) kit #414 Educational Display or notebook INTERMEDIATE DIVISION (10-13 years of age) #417 Robot made from a commercial (purchased) kit #418 Robot designed and constructed by exhibitor. The robot must not be

a mere modification of an existing robot kit or plan. #419 Programmable robot made from a commercial (purchased) kit #420 Educational Display or notebook SENIOR DIVISION (14-18 years of age) #423 Robot made from a commercial (purchased) kit #424 Robot designed and constructed by exhibitor. The robot must not be a mere modification of an existing robot kit or plan. #425 Programmable robot made from a commercial (purchased) kit #426 Educational Display or notebook TEAM ROBOTICS PROJECT #428 Robot designed and constructed by 2 or more 4-H SpaceTech project members. The robot must not be a mere modification of an existing robot kit or plan. The robot may be a programmable type that is made from a commercial (purchased) kit. This division is designed to encourage teamwork and cooperation among fellow 4-H SpaceTech members. As with many high tech projects today, no one person designs and builds a robot alone. It takes the brainstorming, planning, problem solving, and cooperation of an entire team to complete a given robotics project. Exhibitors in this division will be assigned a task for their robots to perform. The Tasks are changed annually. Please visit the SpaceTech website (http://www.Kansas4-H.org/ for the current year’s task. Click on the KSF Packet Link. #429 Team Educational Robotics Display Notebook ROCKETRY The Kansas 4-H SpaceTech Rocketry program is designed to allow 4-H members to explore aerospace through rockets of various sizes. Kansas 4-H has adopted the National Asssociation of Rocketry’s rules, regulations, and safety guidelines. ROCKETRY (Contact the Extension Office for more details) 1. 4-H members must be currently enrolled in the 4-H SpaceTech rocketry program to exhibit in this division. 2. Each exhibitor may enter up to two rockets that have been constructed during the current year. If two rockets are entered, on rocket must be a “kit” and the second may be entered into any other applicable class. An exhibitor may not enter two rockets in the same class. To exhibit in this division, the rocket must have been flown. Support rods must not extend past the tip of the highest nosecone on the model. Support rods must remain in the upright position, do not angle. NO model may be submitted on a launch pad. 3. Each rocket must be able to stand freely by itself or be supported by a solid base, not to exceed 3/4” thick and 8” square. 4. Beginner kits with prefabricated fin assemblies and pre-finished rockets requiring no painting are not acceptable, and will be given a participation ribbon. 5. Original design rockets cannot be a modification of pre-existing kit and must be of original design. 6. Multi-stage rockets can be flown using just the final stage and be considered fully flown. 7. Engines and igniters are not permitted with the exhibit and constitute an immediate disqualification. The only exception to this is the use of a “spent” engine as a permanently affixed structural component of a display base. When a “spent” engine is used in this manner the casing must be completely hollow from one end of the “spent” engine to the other. This hollowing of the “spent” engine includes removal of the nozzle. DO NOT USE engines that still contain propellant. 8. The report that accompanies the rocket must be limited to the 4-H Space Tech rocket Exhibit Information Form which is glued to a 10” x 13” envelope. This may be downloaded from: http:www.Kansas4-H.org/. 9. Plans (or a photocopy) must be placed inside this envelope. This includes original design rockets. If a rocket kit has been modified structurally, notations need to be given indicating the changes made. One or more photographs of the rocket at the launch site are required. Photographs should be mounted on one side of 8 ½” x 11” page(s). There are to be a least 1 page of photos and no more than 5 pages of photos. 10. For a rocket entered in the original design classes (#434, #438, #439, #444, & #445), describe in the summary how the rocket was tested for stability prior to flying. 11. The altitude achieved by the rocket is to be determined using a method other than estimation. Examples of accepted methods include altimeter, computer software, range finder, etc. JUNIOR DIVISION (7 - 9 years of age)
